Ballybeg Theater to Stage World Premiere of THE TASTE OF IT, 6/6-29


The World Premiere of John Adams full length play The Taste of It, will be presented at Theatre 54 at Shetler Studios, June 7th - 29th. This production is being directed by Alex Levy and produced by Ballybeg.

A brilliant dancer named Ross, and Sheila, a driven young director with a gift for language, carve out a place apart - for themselves and each other. Fierce love, talent, and ambition light up The Taste of It, a sensual, explosive romance set in 1970s Boston.
